2 Alcott, Louisa May Rose in Bloom
Rose in Bloom" is a sequel to "Eight Cousins. " This is the complete authorized edition and was published by arrangement with Little, Brown and Company. The preface reads "As authors may be supposed to know better than anyone else what they intended to do when writing a book, I beg leave to say that there is no moral to this story. Rose is not designed for a model girl; and the Sequel was simply written in fulfillment of a promise; hopeing to afford some amusement, and perhaps here and there a helpful hint, to other roses getting ready to bloom. " The blue binding has moderate wear to the end corners, and light wear to the spine ends. The spine is slightly darkened. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.; 344 pages

In a poor teahouse he encounters a child named Peony and, on impulse, buys her to be his attendant. After many adventures they return to Scotland where MacLennan's castle-and his planned revenge on a rival Scotsman-await him. Within the dark walls Peony finds a new life and unexpected happiness. For MacLennan the time has come to fill his dungeon with its destined prisoner. He does not dream of the terrible twist of fate-one that will not lock away his enemy-but the most precious person in his life. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. ; 279 pages

8 Dickens, Charles (Adapted by Widdows, Richard) David Copperfield
0831721073 / 9780831721077; David Copperfield was Dickens' own favorite novel.

This book was in a school library; the only mark is on the fep - it says 4K. The corners and spine ends of the orange binding are worn a bit. 56 pages, illustrated in full color. No marks or tears. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

15 Orgel, Doris The Princess and the God
0531095169 / 9780531095164; Ages 11 and up. "Please make me plain, " young Psyche begs the gods. But with each year her loveliness grows - stirring the jealousy of her two older sisters. Throughout their father's kingdom it is said that Psyche is more beautiful that even Venus, the goddess who rules over passionate desire. Glowering down from the heavens, Venus sees mortals abandoning her temples, worshiping this upstart girl instead. Enraged, the goddess sends her son Cupid to earth, commands to inflame Psyche "with a passion for the crudest, meanest fool. " But at first sight of her, Cupid is himself inflamed. All that happens in this ancient tale - here given new, fleshed-out power in Psyche's own voice - happens because of love. A terrifying journey to the underworld and the other cruel punishments inflicted by Venus are themselves inhuman tests. The courage Psyche summons to survive them is well-nigh superhuman, but her very humanness, Amor sees at last, is her greatest gift to him - and through him to lovers for all time. 116 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
